Face coverings in our branches.
We’re following the latest government rules and we ask that you please wear a face covering in our branches. We appreciate there will be circumstances when this isn’t possible, and we’ll be mindful of when this happens. For example, you may not be able to wear a face covering due to a physical or mental illness, impairment or disability. Similarly, if you need one of our Partners to temporarily remove their face covering to help you communicate with them, we can do so. We may also ask you to temporarily remove your face covering for ID purposes.
For further guidance, please visit the government’s information pages on face coverings (UK, Scotland, Wales).

Support with your mortgage, if you have concerns about your finances.
We understand you may be worried about the impact of coronavirus (COVID-19) and we want to reassure you that we are here to help you with any financial concerns you may have. If you've been financially impacted by COVID-19 and this is affecting your ability to meet your monthly mortgage payment, then you can request to extend an existing repayment holiday.
The deadline for new applications closed on 31 March 2021, however after 31 March 2021, you can extend an existing repayment holiday until 31 July 2021 as long as your request doesn’t go over the six month limit and there are no breaks in the repayment holiday. This is available to all customers including those in arrears. Please make your application to extend as early as possible before your upcoming monthly payment.
If you can maintain your mortgage payments, you should continue to do so as this will be in your best interests longer term. Find out how to apply for a Mortgage Repayment Holiday and whether you’re eligible.
If you continue to be impacted by COVID-19 and you are experiencing financial difficulty but you no longer qualify for a repayment holiday, we’re still here to help. Please complete an income and expenditure form and we’ll get back to you within five working days. Alternatively, you can call us on 0345 835 3374. We’re here from 8am – 7.30pm Monday to Friday (except bank holidays) and 8am – 12.30pm on Saturdays.
If you take a repayment holiday you will pay more interest overall. It is important that if you can afford to make repayments, you continue to do so. We do not report any payments deferred by your repayment holiday to the credit reference agencies as being missed payments. If your account is up to date, it will continue to be reported as being up to date with payments for the duration of your repayment holiday. If your account is currently in arrears please note that the existing arrears will continue to be reported but will not reflect any deterioration due to the payment holiday. The balance reported will increase in line with the accrued interest in either case. Other factors including any existing arrears may affect your credit file or your ability to obtain credit.
Impacted customers holding Fixed Rate Bonds can close their accounts to gain early access to their money. Customers will also be able to access savings in Fixed Rate Cash ISAs and the early withdrawal charge will not apply during this period. Please note, that if you do withdraw from your Fixed Rate ISA, you will lose the tax-free benefit on this amount.
From 1 April 2021 repayment holidays are no longer available to customers who haven’t had a credit card repayment holiday before.
Please visit our Money Confidence page where our experts answer your big questions to help you become more confident with your money every day.
If you have had a credit card repayment holiday before and continue to be impacted by Covid-19 you may request further help. Please visit our Further Help page to apply.
